    If you experience deja vu, remember that this is another of Eddie Romero’s Filipino flicks starring John Ashley, so expect some, okay a lot of similarities to Cinematic Titanic’s Danger On Tiki Island (AKA Brides Of Blood).

    So, is that where in Southeast Asia this movie is supposed to take place?…The Philippines?

    Hmm… it’s slow going at first, with just not that much to riff on. You can tell because of the riffers’ over-reliance on repeating titular elements such as “yellow night”, and Bill himself goes straight to a classic “Announcing film’s title dramatically at ironic time” riff a little too soon for my liking. Speaking of Bill’s riffs, his audio sounds off here. They still interact, laugh at each other’s jokes, etc., so I’m guessing they really were in the same place while recording and just that the sound equipment wasn’t quite set right this time around. Might want to keep an eye on this, as it’s not something I’d particularly like to hear in future releases.

    As Goshzilla pointed out, this has some similarities to Danger on Tiki Island, but that’s mostly related to its location, production values, direction, and cast. Beast of the Yellow Night’s plot is quite different, and unfortunately lacks the zaniness that made Danger so much fun. It’s a mildly bad, awkwardly made, and generally pointless flick. After a slow start, the riffs flow at an okay rate, but not nearly as many great zingers as what we had just seen in The Last Slumber Party. Oh well, they can’t all be winners. But if something in the description above made you say “hey that’s just what I like”, then you might to consider it.

  4. I actually saw this in 1970 at the drive-in. It was the second of a double feature, the first being Creature With The Blue Hand (starring Klaus Kinski!). While neither were masterpieces, Creature was by far the better flick of the two.

    I would love to see a reasonably-priced DVD collection of several VOD Rifftrax.
